Stretch marks

Are stretch marks normal post delivery? It's been 6 months and they haven't gone away completely.

stretch marks usually become considerably less noticeable about six to 12 months after childbirth. The pigmentation fades and they generally become lighter than the surrounding skin (the color will vary depending on your skin color), but their texture will remain the same. If you're bothered by yours, talk to a dermatologist about treatment options.
